Last week when Friday Frock was a little late in making an appearance, I asked for you guys to step in on twitter and share your Friday finds and lust-have’s. Two of you recommended this dress, which is a bit more retro fabulous that I would usually wear but the print is absolutely gorgeous and I like the different colour ways. (For those of you, like me, who prefer a little less of a retro look, there is a Spring Bloom Flared Dress version, without the shirt front – also a little more formal for occasions.)
Ever a fan of dressing up however, I can totally see this with flat plimsols, a wicker mini cross body bag, cat eye sunglasses and a bicycle, on an english country lane.
Wat do you think ladies – hit or miss for you? Have a great weekend,
Hurrah! Friday Frock O’clock is back. I was debating whether to revisit friday frock after the brief hiatus that was January Joy, but then I flicked through a magazine and spotted this fabulous striped number and fell in love. I think it’s an appropriate return to one of my favourite features 🙂
This weekend I have not one but two parties to go to. Fortunately they are different people, so one dress could have done both occasions… if I had found a dress that is.
Tonight it’s my work Christmas party, followed by a very good friends 30th. It’s safe to say by Sunday I’ll be planning a detox.
Yesterday I went to French Connection, party dress central, where the sale has already started just in time for the biggest party weekend of the year. Their embellished dresses are usually priced high enough to make them special-occasion-only, however the sales are often great opportunities to pick up one of their dresses at a massive discount. This year is no exception. I tried 2 dresses on – One had been reduced from £250 to £167 and the other from £275 to £137.50 (You can see the ones I tried here and here… – I chose the first one after canvassing Instagram opinion.)
However, on coming home and browsing French Connection online I found this super sweet and pretty Winter Gems Tunic Dress. I’ve always had a weakness for pale colours as they go well with my dark hair. I always feel glamourous yet feminine in lighter shades, particularly in the winter. I love the slightly sixties shift style with longer sleeves and that the embellishment is minimal, meaning that yet again it can work for a fancy party or on Christmas day with a cardi. It’s also 50% off making it almost reasonable. 😉
Have a happy party weekend readers – hands up if it’s your work Christmas party and do share what you will be wearing!!
Now I have to confess, I did not find this week’s frock – you did. Yes that would be you Lel!
As soon as I saw this one, I couldn’t believe I missed it out of my Party Frocks round up this week, and my goodness, Oasis have got some corkers when it comes to Christmas sparkle… get thee over there and don’t blame me for the damage 😉
It’s been a long week readers, hopefully by now I’ll be sinking my toes into the new carpet and admiring my work, so join me in sharing the spirit of Friday Frock O’clock by pasting a link of the frock you’re coveting at the moment into the comments box below so we can all veg out and admire them!
It’s back! Friday Frock O’clock, after the outcry last week when we briefly omitted it for a Friday Film, is back in its rightful place. Don’t you worry, we won’t be doing that again in a hurry!
Have I ever told you that I love GAP? And I love it particularly in the winter.
My obsession with colour and the fact that I live in a (b$*ody freezing) Victorian house, means that their cheerful 100% wool knitwear is a must purchase every year for me… along with the body warmers, scarves, wool socks… I could go on 😉
So this week’s frock, is less ‘frock’ and more dress, but fabulous all the same and perfect for the windy weather.
I love the way they have layered this one up with extra woolies… it’s an overdose of cosy! And I’ll take the boots too please.
Did I mention GAP have 30% off instore and online until Sunday. Which makes this purchase a mere £39.16 from £55.95. Get your Christmas shopping done early… or in my case, treat yourself to some things 🙂
Happy Florence Friday Folks,
PS. I guarantee, I’ll be pulling the above pose when I’m wearing it too!
You won’t see many black dresses on these here pages, mainly because I have a massive aversion to black. I know that so many women are completely addicted to it, it’s slimming, it’s classic, it’s work wear… I know, I know, the list goes on. I don’t even mind seeing other people in it, honestly. But when I wear it, I feel funereal.
However, being Halloween, I decided to look for a little black dress because I know there are tons of gorgeous ones out there (I even see them sometimes and think… I would so wear that, if I wore black,) and they are so popular. I intended to find a work-wear dress, maybe something for day wear… and then I found this baby.
Seriously? Once I caught sight of her ruffles? I was toast.
I strongly suspect that you have to be of epic proportions to look good in this dress, all legs and magnificent height, but the picture above is enough to sell it to me! Ted Baker always do amazing party dresses (with amazing prices!) and there’s never a season that I’m not lusting after one of their creations.
So, it’s Friday, time for you to share your favourite frocks – a black theme this week. Anything you’re lusting after, purchasing or wearing, let’s while away the last couple of hours of Friday by leaving a comment we can all look at before the weekend!
This week’s Friday Frock is all about the leopard and a taste of things to come next week. Leopard prints are absolutely everywhere this season and I think when a trend is massive like this there’s only one thing to do. Embrace it.
The potential barmaid look to this dress is softened by the looser shape and angora mix lending a bit more of the kitten and less of the sex-appeal. Team it with leather as shown here however and I won’t be responsible for the consequences!
At a bargain £45, you also won’t be feeling disappointed if you aren’t brave enough to wear it to death or leopard doesn’t live on next season.
Long live leopard.
